McCaskill Gets Beefed Up Security After Tea Party Activist Says: ‘We Have To Kill The Claire Bear’

Sen. Claire McCaskill Getting Beefed Up Security After Tea Party Activist Declares ‘We Have To Kill The Claire Bear’
By Alex Seitz-Wald posted from ThinkProgress Election on May 8, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Police are assigning extra security to Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) after a Tea Party activist declared at a rally last week, “We have to kill the Claire Bear ladies and gentlemen.” The rally was hosted by the group Tea Party Express, which is endorsing McCaskill challenger Sarah Steelman (R), who was in attendance at the rally.

Scott Boston, a St. Louis Tea Party activist, said, “She walks around like she’s some sort of Rainbow Brite Care Bear or something but really she’s an evil monster.” “We have to kill the Claire Bear,” he added.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that local police are performing more patrols around the senator’s house at the request of the Capitol Police, and that she now has extra security at public events.

Steelman has not made a public comment condemning Boston’s comments, despite being present at the event supporting her, and neither have McCaskill’s other GOP challengers, Rep. Tod Akin (R-MO) or John Brunner. Boston later said he did not intend the comment to be a threat.

1. There is definitely a violent fascist strain in the Tea Party movement.

5. Indeed there is

No question about it. The problem is that the media still continues to treat both parties like they say/do the same things which is bullshit.

There is clearly a threat of violence here...why do RWing terrorists get away with murder threats?
